Reuters seeks oil industry reporter in Houston
Reuters is seeking a focused, driven journalist who is passionate about breaking news to join its U.S. energy team to cover energy markets and the wider petroleum industry.
The position will focus on covering spot oil markets and uncovering news about the people and infrastructure moving and processing U.S. crude emerging from the shale revolution and resurgent U.S. energy industry. As part of a team of a dozen reporters covering North American oil, the successful candidate will produce scoops and pull the curtain back on the opaque, dynamic crude oil market.
Assessing prices is part of the role. The reporter will need to develop deep contacts in the industry to master complex arbitrage activity, understand how traders can profit from volatile shifts in fundamentals and write authoritatively about market trends.
Relying on a strong source base and growing expertise, the successful candidate will be expected to produce exclusive news that will set the agenda for our core energy market users and audience of financial professionals and investors across the world.
He or she should have strong team skills and be keen to deliver a range of stories as part of a strong, competitive group of reporters with a reputation for producing agenda-setting coverage of the industry.
The position is based in Houston, a cosmopolitan city that is home to major energy producers, traders and transporters.
Our regional energy correspondents are spread across New York, Houston, Canada and Latin America so the ability to work in a virtual team is essential.
